Judge B. Glen Whitley has issued an amended Executive Order for Tarrant County regarding public health and COVID-19.

The Texas Department of State Health Services has released guidance for Employers, Employees and Customers of Reopened Retail Services.  The guidance is based on the best information currently available and will be updated when appropriate.  Please visit DHS and the CDC for updates.

Employees of a retail business re-opening must be trained on environmental cleaning and disinfection, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette.  They must be screened before coming into the business for new or worsening cough; shortness of breath; sore throat; loss of taste or smell; feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit; or known close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19. Any employee who meets any of these criteria should be sent home.  Upon entering the business, employees must wash or sanitize hands.  All employees must wear face coverings.  Employees must maintain at least 6 feet separation from one another.

Customers may purchase items from a retail location for pickup, delivery by mail, or delivery to the customer’s doorstep, but may not enter the premises.
